Summary of Clinical Use
Anastrozole is indicated in the treatment of breast cancer in post-menopausal women, both as an adjuvant therapy following surgery and in patients with metastatic breast cancer.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Estrogen is primarily synthesized by conversion of adrenally-generated androstenedione to estrone by aromatase in peripheral tissues. Aromatase inhibition therefore, leads to a decrease in estrogen levels in both serum and cancer tissue. In estrogen-responsive tumors this results in decreased tumor mass and in some women, delayed tumor growth.
